TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction at Kenwood and Merrimac near Old Orchard Elementary in west Toledo.
Police say a 13-year-old Old Orchard student was walking to school around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when a man drove up and rolled down his window, asking the girl to get inside.
In a letter sent to parents from the district it says the man then got out of his car and tried to get the girl into the car, but she ran home.
"She managed to make it home, mom came and brought her to school, so we filed a report - the necessary reports," said Old Orchard Principle Valerie Dreier.
After the mother contacted Toledo Public Schools, she then notified Toledo police of the incident.
The girl described him as a black man in his late 30's or early 40's with short hair. He was wearing a dark-colored jacket and driving a dark blue Chevy Impala or Malibu.
As soon as the school was notified Dreier says they took action.
